Għargħur Primary is taking a first step for Fair Trade.This year we are intoducing the fairtrade concept in the Boroż ta’ San Martin sold by the School Council as part of its educational fundraising activities. Information about fairtrade will reach some children and their families for the first time ever.
Being sold at €3.50, each bag will contain the traditional sweet bun (ħbejża ta’ San Martin), a few walnuts and hazelnuts, an apple, a tangerine or clementina and an organic & fairtrade date and walnut bar. The bag will also include information about fairtrade.
Traditionally, the Borża ta’ San Martin – a simple colourful cloth bag pulled with a string on top – was placed near the children bedside, full of hard shelled almonds, walnuts, chestnuts, figs, apples, oranges, tangerines, pomegranates, and the traditional San Martin bun hard glazed on top and with a liquored sweet stuck in the middle of the bun. No wonder the children would happily chant the rhyme “ġewż, lewż, qastan, tin, kemm inħobbu l-San Martin”!
Order yours today! Orders are accepted till the 20th October.
